Great experience

Excellent food. Service was a bit slow but they were super busy! We chose to eat inside due to the heat and having a baby with us but the wait was the same inside or out. Reasonable prices. Grilled chicken tacos were perfect. Green chile burrito didn't disappoint but the rice was just so so... read more

Portions have changed size but still a good eat! Wish they had sweet potato fries! The Hippie sandwich is yum and it takes 3-4 people to eat the cookie dessert.

Stopped here for a bite to eat with my wife and toddler. Great service! Head to wait about 15 minutes, but the food was very good and they had an awesome variety of drinks! Even thought it's 100 degrees outside, we sat on the patio and we're still cool with all the fans. Fun atmosphere and a great place to... More

A really cool place. Eat inside or outside. Eclectic decor. Inside is dark and old fashioned. Outside is benches or tables, or sit at the bar! Popular on weekends, there may be a wait. Food is good with more than adequate servings. Beer is cold and there is variety. Mixed drinks are well made. Sometimes there is live music. Service... More

It took us one hour to be seated in the furthest and dirtiest spot in the restaurant (next to the bathrooms which and at the bar's exit, truly smelly and shabby)!. When we asked for a change of table , the hostess told us we had to wait again at the end of the waiting list for another 45 min.... More

I love the atmosphere of this place. It feels like a backyard neighborly down home retro atmosphere with the pastel metal yard chairs outside. Looks to be a great place for evening music on the patio with twinkling lights strung through the trees and patio. I came in for lunch and ordered the tamale cake appetizer. The place was really...

Loved the 50's décor. Good service. Our food was just average. I ordered a BLT. The bacon was a bit chewy and salty. My husband ordered the meatloaf and it was smothered in some kind of chili sauce and melted cheese that made it greasy and gave me indigestion (we shared our meals with each other). My daughter ordered a... More

Great veggie burgers (and regular burgers) and excellent drinks. It's fun to sit outside under the big shade trees and watch Austin go by. They have music outdoors at times, call to confirm, but even if there isn't a show, it is a wonderful place to sit and relax and watch the world go by.

We went for a late Sunday lunch for our first visit. My husband ordered the catfish which is served on a bed of deliciously spiced queso and topped with a pico de gallo. Sounds strange but it was so refreshingly different and tasty! I ordered a pecan crusted trout with vegetables. The trout was okay but the vegetables stole the... More
